Your Old Droog has been an Internet Rap sensation, almost entirely on his own two feet. As some Heads speculated that the long-faceless MC was possibly an MF DOOM/Bumpy Knuckles-styled side project for Nas (with New York City underground Hip-Hop community members previously waving off reports), video footage appeared , alleging it not to be the case.

Whatever the case may be, one of the cool attributes that has fed the curiosity is the fact that Droog’s music stands almost entirely on its own. Collaborations weren’t in the cards, from a city and movement where dabbling with other artists is commonplace.

Although he previously released a track produced by Larry Fisherman (Mac Miller’s production alter ego), “Hoodie Weather” is Droog’s first big collabo. Kicking off the month of September properly, the MC links with Prodigy (an artist that Nas hasn’t worked with in the 2010s as he did in the ’90s). The record, with a grabbing guitar loop, just celebrates that time of year where Heads can wear colorful hooded sweatshirts, and rock out to Rap tapes. In Droog’s essay, he recalls wishing for a Pelle Pelle number, with a H.N.I.C tape from Sam Goody. Ah, memories.

All questions will be answered about Droog tomorrow night (9/3), as he performs at NYC’s Webster Hall.

Droog and Prodigy sound great together, no? Who would you like to hear Y.O.D rock alongside, besides Mr. Jones?
